I've been running through the confluence site's instructions on installing and running the software. The installation instructions work pretty well - lcsim and hps-java install as suggested, as does SLIC. (hps--detectors still requires an additional change in the maven settings file, though, which is not listed in the explanation. Should this be required?)

I do run into an issue with JAS3, though. The lcsim plugin appears to install correctly, but then when I reload JAS3, I get this error:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/freehep/record/loop/event/RecordLoopListener
    at java.lang.Class.getDeclaredConstructors0(Native Method)
    at java.lang.Class.privateGetDeclaredConstructors(
    at java.lang.Class.getConstructor0(
    at java.lang.Class.newInstance0(
    at java.lang.Class.newInstance(
    at org.freehep.jas.JAS3.init(
    at org.freehep.application.Application.createFrame(
    at org.freehep.jas.JAS3.main(

The WIRED4 plugin seems to work fine. Any thoughts on this? Also, I noticed that the main install instructions ( don't indicate to install WIRED4 base or the lcsim plugin. Should it? I installed them, since another set of instructions ( did say to.

Next, I attempted to follow the "Generating Monte Carlo Data" tutorial. The command it says to run is

./SimDist/scripts/ -g [LCDD_FILE] -i [StdHEP_File] -x -o [OutFileName] -r 10000
I don't actually seem to have a "" script in my SLIC installation. Is this still accurate, and if so, where can I find this script? As a side note, what does -x mean? (We also might want to update the tutorial to point to the actual location of StdHEP files, since the location pointed to currently no longer exists.

Thanks for your assistance,
